Googie Greensboro

For our purposes, "googie" refers to postwar modern commercial architecture. While Greensboro is not exactly a hotbed of space-age buildings, we have noticed a few gems around town . . . The Beaman Building, built in 1964, retains it's original sign—

An office building on the corner of Lawndale and Colonial, circa 1953—

City Motors was once a Chrysler dealership. The building (1969) and land are now for sale—

Beef Burger on Lee Street (1963). Used as a location in the movie Bull Durham, and—despite the name—includes a vegetarian burger on the menu—

Another cool looking office building on North Elm St. (1969)—
